on january 20th. and our dan lothian is at the white house right now. hello, dan. give us a feel for what happened. who was in the room for the swearing-in, how long it lasted. we saw it on television. it was pretty short. the mood and any other details you might have for us. >> reporter: think the headline here is that the oath was administered without a hitch. there were no problems at all. as you remember four years ago, there were some problems with some words moved out of place, stepping on each other, the president and chief justice roberts. this time, it went off without a hitch. it was a very intimate setting in the white house blue room, the president surrounded by some close family members and friends. the first lady, his daughters, also his sister and his mother-in-law and brother. and it was a short event. only lasted for about 30 seconds. and then afterwards, sort of a colorful moment, where the president was hugging the first lady, hugging the first daughters and then his daughter, sasha, his youngest daughter, saying to the president, "well, you didn't mess up," again, maki

to a fair share of security. protection for their kids and gun free zones for ours. >> it's a tough ad. dan lothian is at the white house. but i understand the president is fighting back with his own pr strategy because when he makes his big announcement he'll be surrounded by children who wrote letters to him begging for gun control. >> reporter: that's right. you know, we see the white house do this in the past, usually it's around a fiscal fight where the president's putting pressure on congress he'll be surrounded by families from across the country. well, in fact, the president, as you pointed out, will be surrounded by these young kids who wrote letters to the president in the wake of the connecticut shootings. in addition to that, though, a white house official confirming that the president will also be joined with some newtown families, families impacted by the newtown shootings at this event here today. so, clearly this is an effort by the white house to put pressure on lawmakers. as we've been pointing out, there are two tracks here that will take place, things that congress can d

. >> we want to head across town to find our dan lothian. dan, another historic moment right before noon in the blue room. >> that's right. it's because it's a constitutional requirement that the president takes the oath on this day. just before noon, so the president taking that oath in a private ceremony. surrounded by close family members and friends, the first lady, the first daughters, his sister, his mother-in-law and brother-in-law during that ceremony that lasted just about 30 seconds. and the big public ceremony will take place tomorrow at the capitol and this was a chance for the president in a private ceremony at the swearing in here in the blue room. you saw and heard the president a few seconds ago, take a listen at the very end, after the president started greeting the first lady and the first daughters. >> thank you. dy it. i did it. >> so, leave it to the first daughters. the daughter sasha telling the president he didn't mess up. that's a reference to four years ago. when during that public ceremony they kind of stepped on some of the words, had to do a redo, that didn't

to leave. so, don, what do you know -- dan, about this speech. is it done? >> we're toll the president putting sort of the last points on that speech and will be making some tweaks before he actually rolls it out tomorrow. we're told by advisers here at the white house that this will not be a chance for him to lay out policies but rather will be having or delivering a hopeful speech. making the admission that clearly you can't settle every debate here in washington, but that you have to look for areas of common ground. the president will talk about some of the challenges that he will be facing over the next four years, certainly some of those key domestic issues the president will be tackling, immigration reform, gun control, and finally the president hoping to get some public support to push his agenda through congress. plans to engage the public to put pressure on members of congress. this is being viewed as sort of act one, where the president makes broad themes. act two is between the president will release more details during his state of the union address next month. >> dan, i'm

international correspondent dan rivers. he's in london to to see bring us the latest. good morning. what can you tell us then about the reports of this final assault? >> reporter: well, this is being carried out by algerian state-run television saying that seven further victims have been recovered and 11 militants. now it's really difficult to grasp the total number of hostages that have been killed so far. we're trying to put it together, but they probably include japanese, brits, malasians, possibly some norwegians and other nationalities. it's very difficult to know the final numbers. but adding up what we know it could be up to at least 32 missing and possibly up to 26 confirmed dead, although those numbers have been changing a lot. that gives you a sense of the scale of this anyway. among those, at least one american i'm afraid confirmed dead. six americans confirmed rescued, freed. and those details as i say, we're hoping to try and get more clarification in the coming hours. >> what is being said about this crisis there in britain? >> reporter: well, william hague, the british foreign sec

necessary to protect americans in a harrowing hostage crisis unfolding in algeria. dan rivers is in london to bring us the very latest this morning. dan, good morning to you. algeria is defending a military operation that now has left at least one american and 11 others dead. what can you tell us about that? >> absolutely. this situation is not over yet. i think that is the headline. they're saying they're still pursuing terrorists and some hostages within this sprawling gas plant in the far south of algeria. as you say, the state department has confirmed one death. it's been widely reported he is from texas. the state department not going into further details about how many americans may still be missing. we're waiting for an update from london from the british foreign secretary william hague, chairing an emergency meeting about this. algerian state television is reporting that terrorists were planning to kill all of the hostages and to blow up this plant. so, it could have been a lot worse, had they managed to get through that. in the end algerians went in, freed some 650 people. there a

. for that i want to bring in my colleague, white house correspondent dan lothian. dan, let's talk about priorities for the president's second term but first it's an interesting little nugget of history. this is a historic day and also a historic inauguration for president obama because he's going to match only fdr in getting two double swear-ins or four swearing-ins if you will. why is that? >> first of all, look back to 2009 when justice roberts and the president kind of stepped on each other, the word "faithfully" out of order, there was a question whether or not it was legitimate so, they had a second one in the private quarters of the white house. this time around the constitution says you have to administer the oath before noon on the 20th. on sunday is not typically when we have the inauguration, so they'll have a private ceremony in the blue room on sunday and then on monday they'll have the official sort of public swearing-in for the president. >> and the parade and pomp and circumstance we expect in an inauguration ceremony. so, tuesday the pomp and circumstance monday, tuesday

, dan wrote that she distributed drugs for lance, and i have a huge problem with -- a huge problem with that because i really think a lot of these women, they love the lifestyle because in europe cycling is completely different than it is in the united states, and obviously lance and kristin were making a lot of money. a lot of people were making a lot of money, and i think a lot of these women love the money and they didn't care if their husbands were doping because you could afford the louis vuitton and the cartier sunglasses. so i have a problem with that, a big, big, big problem with that because i never blogged about morality. i never blogged about doing the right thing. i tried to walk the talk, and we see what -- we see what happened, so i'm not so sure i i mean, i have a real problem, and i don't want to -- it couldn't have been easy to be married to lance, not at all. she distributed drugs. i mean, dan wrote that she distributed drugs for lance, and i have a huge problem with -- a huge problem with that because i really think a lot of these women, they love the lifestyle b

weapons ban through. >> let's head to washington and the white house. dan lothian is there, so dan, is the nra right? >> well, you know, i'm not going to make any predictions about what congress may or may not do. as we have learned over the last few years, what i can say is that assault weapons ban does appear to be facing an uphill effort up on capitol hill and i think what's interesting is that the president, right after the mass shooting in connecticut came out and talked about, you know, putting his support behind efforts to reinstate the assault weapons ban and this had been the position of the white house since then but what was interesting last week when the vice president was rolling out what he said what are the top tier recommendations that he had been getting of meeting with several groups he did not mention that at all so there were questions about whether the white house itself may have felt that it was losing steam and there was not support for this on capitol hill. but shortly thereafter, a spokesman for the white house saying the president and the vice president ar
